Reykjavik under construction on-site visit to the Marriott Edition Hotel construction site

Our staff design, manufacture and deliver façade windows and the vast majority of aluminium building elements for the most complex hotel construction project to date in the capital of Iceland.

We visited the construction site of the Marriott Hotel with Zoltán Nagy, domestic Sales Manager of the unique Reynaers Aluminum System Administrator. At the end of the Icelandic summer, we watched the installation of our products in a 13-degree wind, in glittering sunshine. The installation of larger glass panels had just began, the closure of nodes designed for special meteorological loads and the installation of ground-curtain walls and portal structures. Fire protection and acoustic closures between the floors are started and their components and parts are also supplied by KAV. It was great to see the results of our work as well as the professional on-site construction practice and the quality of the construction as the Icelandic professionals work.

Our products will arrive at the closing floor of the main building of the hotel in these days, but soon the fabrication of the specially reinforced wooden folding doors and the 4 m high flat glazed entrance portals will begin. A lot of preparation and work has been done by our specialists working on the packaging and loading of our products, as a result of which all our products have travelled unharmed, on land and sea, to the construction site in the capital, more than 3000 kilometres away. It was fascinating to see the Icelandic builders’ extremely sophisticated battle with the weather, which included protecting all open wall openings and non-glazed door and window frames with permanent foil and / or backing them with laminated wood panelling. Their continuous installation and relocation is undertaken by a dedicated team, as they can only carry out interior design work on these port buildings by excluding the constant burden of wind from the sea, which often brings precipitation in a variety of physical conditions.
The capital of Iceland is under construction and beautification, of which this building complex will probably be the brightest gem. Of course, we will also report on the finishing touches to the project, illustrating this exemplary and exotic project with some spectacular pictures too.

Huge glass walls in a villa with breathtaking features
The glass is the soul of the villa designed by architect Péter Koch, the head of Nara Studio. The unique, distinctive building achieves its floating effect through the almost endless glass surfaces, providing the owner with a perfect panoramic view and an unparalleled sense of connection with the environment. We asked the architect about the design process of the building and the collaboration between the various aspects of the project.

Custom windows and doors beyond the standards
Just as in many areas of the world, ‘unique’ and ‘self-expression’ are the strongest buzzwords; so change the needs of architects and developers. However, most door and window manufacturers are finding it difficult to go beyond the standard items, although this area also offers many innovations in the field of architecture when it comes to sincerely rethinking structures.

Choose big aluminium windows and doors!
The use of aluminium doors and windows in family homes allows increasingly large glass surfaces to appear in residential buildings. Because we spend a large part of our time indoors, high-transparency aluminium windows and sliding doors help to create an almost direct connection with the environment. We discussed with Károly Lovász, the managing director of KAV Hungária, why it is worth choosing large doors and windows.

Wind pressure is the biggest challenge for doors and windows designed for Iceland
Our company, is involved in the doors and windows solutions of the Marriott Hotel, being built near Harpa, one of the symbolic buildings of Reykavík. The Icelandic architecture and the weather conditions on the island require different systems from the ones we are used to at home, so the KAV team has also built a prototype for this work, taking into account, among others, the installation and insulation aspects. Details were given by Norbert Kiss, architect consultant and Csaba Mravik, chief development engineer.

Aluminium doors and windows with custom solutions
The founding of KAV Hungária was also triggered by an innovative idea: why not introduce aluminium doors and windows to the family home market? Since then, our own developments, individual solutions, needs assessment and construction work organisation have become the defining elements of the company. Károly Lovász, the managing director of KAV, Gábor Csóti, the founder of the Gamechangers community and Kálmán Szabó, the host of the podcast by the Association for Excellence Public Benefit Association, spoke about innovation, the underlying managerial thinking and organisational structure.

We build for the future rather than for today
Clear shapes, large glass surfaces, spacious interior spaces and creative use of materials – these are the main features of the most predominant architectural style of our era, minimalistic design, in which interest is outstanding in Hungary. However, the number of really well designed and built minimalistic family homes is relatively low. The property our engineers consider as one of the best designed ones our company has met in recent years was built in Budapest. During the project we paid increased attention to the design of large, liberally designed glass surfaces, essential for creating open spaces. We had a conversation with the developer of the house about what was needed to create this property.

The Architect needs to think with the door and window specialist
People at KAV can think together with the project, suggesting fancy solutions that often go beyond installation instructions. They think about it, add some parts that make a door trendy, no matter how strange it sounds at first. They feel the fine details that need to be put into it. They can think together with their architect colleague.

The relationship between aluminium doors and windows and the façade
In parallel with the advent of the latest aluminium door and window solutions, including filigree case systems and large glass surfaces, façades have also been transformed in the family home market. In addition to functionality, design also plays a key role in more and more buildings. However, architects rarely involve professionals in the process of designing doors, windows and façades. According to Krisztián Vatai, executive director of Facade Design & Building, who is engaged in the design, construction and production of façades, a change of attitude and education is needed to change this.

The evolution of blinds
Climate change and increasingly sophisticated customer demands have accelerated the evolution of shading systems, not just of windows and doors. While in the past the goal was complete darkening, nowadays light control and maximum transparency are the main considerations. Thanks to this, most client choose lamellar and textile shadings.

A refined aesthetic for doors and windows
The popularity of the minimalist style in architecture is one of the reasons that aluminium doors and windows entered the family house sector. Applying the principle of “less is more” to architecture led architects and designers to use unique solutions and austere or transparent surfaces. In a minimalist home, simple shapes and forms help create an atmosphere of harmony, where space itself serves humanity.

Those about whom who nobody ever talks, or the eminences of manufacturing preparation
KAV's customers come into contact with several of our colleagues in the bidding, preparation and construction processes in the course of a job. These are our sales and estimation colleagues, our technical and manufacturing preparation engineers, our project engineers, and then our installation specialists. It is very rare that the end-user comes into contact with the manufacturing preparation engineers. In this article, we’d like to describe the work of these professionals in connection with the Continental Golf Club construction project.

Development by KAV of aluminium doors and windows with an all-glass look
Optivison© is unique in Hungary. (KAV is the only player in the small and medium-sized business sector to have developed aluminium doors and windows with an all-glass look for family homes.) Apart from KAV, no one among small and medium-sized enterprises has developed all-glass look aluminium fenestration for family houses. The system was designed to respond to the needs of our customers: we made the frame flush with the glass by rethinking the structure of tilt and turn windows and balcony doors. Our solution creates a ‘glass wing’ effect, making Optivison© systems the trend-setting doors and windows for modern family homes.

Reflecting the environment with closing systems
The KAV approach helped a lot in its implementation. They talk to the customer and they don't want to sell a product, they want to answer questions and look for a solution. I did not have to choose from a catalogue, so I was not forced to choose from a set of solutions, but was offered individual solutions to a given problem. Of the companies I worked with, KAV gave me the most technical support.
